The order of Great Dane Airlines given to Liebherr-Aerospace for the overhaul of the Danish airline’s Embraer E195 fleet has marked a great finish of Liebherr’s landing gear overhaul campaign in 2019.

Last year has been quite successful for the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) as it was able to include in its order book several landing gear system overhaul contracts for E-Jet E1 aircraft from operators all over the world. The company is honored to partner with the majority of established operators as well as with startup airlines such as Great Dane Airlines which was founded in 2018 and started services in mid-2019.

“We are very happy to rely on the OEM expertise of Liebherr-Aerospace to take care of our landing gear overhauls”, commented Thomas Hugo Møller, CEO of Great Dane Airlines.

The complete landing gear system for the E-Jet E1 family (E170/E175/E190,E195) has been developed, manufactured and certified by OEM Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Lindenberg (Germany), Liebherr’s center of competence for flight controls and landing gear systems.
